Qualifying is open for the Special Primary Election to fill the vacant House District 67 seat in Dallas and Perry Counties. Any interested registered voter in HD67 may call the Party office at (334) 262-2221 to get qualifying forms. An interested person may also print a qualifying form, located on the Democratic Party's website, aldemocrats.org. The qualifying fee is $558.26, half the usual Legislative qualifying fee because the eventual winner will serve half the term.
All qualifying papers, along with the fee, must be received in the State Party Office, by Tuesday, November 29, 2016, at 5:00 PM. A candidate may hand deliver qualifying forms to the Alabama Democratic Party Office, 501 Adams Ave, Montgomery, AL 36104, or he/she may mail the form to the Alabama Democratic Party, P.O. Box 950, Montgomery, AL 36101.
According to Chair Nancy Worley, "Democrats in Dallas and Perry Counties have an excellent opportunity to fill this vacant seat," which was created when former Representative Darrio Melton was elected Mayor of Selma. Chairwoman Worley emphasized the importance of any candidate's willingness to work hard and represent House District 67 with integrity and accountability.
